I have a Kenmore refrig./ model# 363.9741714

I have a Kenmore refrig./ freezer on top model # 363.9741714. The icemaker continualy over flows water and freezes the ice cubes together and it gets stuck at times and will not stop making ice cubes. I would like to fix problem myself, water is off and unit is ready to be removed but I'm not sure how to disconnect the electric to the icemaker.

The problem is actually not the ice maker itself. The problem is the electric solenoid valve in the rear bottom of refrigerator. If you follow the water line on the back of the unit down to the bottom and replace the valve that it is connected to then your problem will be solved. Hope this helps. Good luck cj2176.

Kenmore top freezer with icemaker, water is running down the inside back wall of refrig.


The defrost drain line is stopped up with ice. It must be defrosted manually until all the ice is gone.

If this is the Kenmore french door model with bottom freezer and ice and water in the door made by LG it could be that the mother board has failed.  Call for service and hope that warranty is still in effect.

Model 78182891 Coldspot with excessive water Collecting in Refrig


a plugged or frozen drain is a common problem that occurs from time to time in just about all refrigs so the answer is yes it may occur again in the future. But folllow theses directions and it will probably not occur again for 2-3 years.
 
  • Unplug refrigerator
  • unload food from freezer
  • remove icemaker if present (there are 3 screws remove the one on the bottom and loosen the 2 on top of icemaker then lift it off the 2 screws unplug from wiring harness)
  • remove 2 screws holding rear cover in place
  • move cover to the side or remove from unit altogether
  • defrost any and all ice from bottom of freezer and aluminum drain pan that is now exposed
  • flush drain hole that you will see once ice is cleared with warm water. (sometimes I use a large syringe or turkey baster to forcefully flush hot water thru the drain tube)
  • reassemble in reverse order
Post back if you have any questions and I'll gladly help you out Thanks Peyton

Too much water getting to ice maker


The little cup that sits in front of the hose that dispenses the water, has frozen water in it . Check that first and if it's OK, then there is a small screw that you can adjust, look at your manual.
